.6 foot rise. that's going to bring the water because i remember i was here with irene, it was up to the top of these benches. now you're talking about water that's going to be about this high. so i think it's without question that we're going to flood the battery here. how much of this water gets in the subway system, i don't know. >> what about the wind? >> a lot of reports suggest -- what was that? >> are we going to see something like you see in kansas where you see roofs blown over after acres and acres of property. are we going to see that kind of wind damage in the northeast this time? >> reporter: don't think of what i'm getting here is representative of the wind because it's really not. i'm protected from the buildings. but we have gusts already out at montauk at 71. this is not like where you're going to have 130-mile-per-hour winds, so, no, the answer to that question is no, but there will be so much tree damage we think across interior pennsylvania and new york and new jersey, even parts of new england, back down through west virginia that that's a big concern. i mean,
. the mayor here wants to make sure people don't get complacent, basis year ago, hurricane irene, they had all these dire warnings, and it really didn't do much to this city. he wants to make sure they understand that this time there really could be some severe flooding, a storm surge of 4-eight of 8 feet which would mean where i'm standing will certainly be underwater. he's warning people in the low-lying parts of the island to prepare to evacuate. he said power could be out for days. they need a disaster supply kit. it's very important that people don't get complacent based on what happened a year ago because this one could be much worse. bob. >> schieffer: all right, thank you, my friend. chip reid in maryland. let's go now to cbs news correspondent elaine quijano. she is at point pleasant beach, new jersey this morning. elaine, what's the latest there? >> reporter: good morning to you, bob. well, governor chris christie has declared a statement of emergency here in new jersey, and he's also ordered the mandatory evacuation for residents who live on the barrier islands. that begin at 4:00 t
we had last year with irene and all the damage with that. not too dissimilar storm. potential impacts and winds this time, much bigger story, i think we'll see winds 60-80 miles an hour and this time a long storm, 24-36 hours. that means we'll see a plotted more people with significant power outages and lots of damage to the beaches. >> shep: and cold. rick riechmuth will keep on it day in and day out. 12 days until americans pick the next president. new poll governor romney gaining ground in a crucial battleground state. president obama's lead among women voters in virginia is down 12 points and it's six points. it shows the president and governor are tied at 47% among women voters nationwide. month ago he a 16-point lead. women are projected to make up more than 16% of the electorate. they have cut the men 13 points to five points. a spokesperson says she is not buying it. any poll that shows us tied with women and men is not a poll we are placing bets on in vegas. president targeting three it's a as he wraps up a 48-hour campaign marathon and governor romney is doing the make or br
: there is. people here dealt with hurricane irene a year ago and they are taking this one even more seriously. the mandatory evacuation is up until 8:00 p.m. tonight. people are boarding up their homes and businesses and heading out of town. they are patiently waiting in line at gas stations and taking it seriously and getting out. >> susan mcginnis, thank you. >> and brian, you have been watching this storm. how has it been looking from our advantage? >> it is on track off the coast of new england and moving parallel to the shoreline as you can see right now. the hurricane force winds will overspread the east coast by tomorrow morning. we will have the latest on cbs this morning beginning at 4:30 arm on monday. you can see right now they are picking up rein and winds. the full moon tomorrow will be combined with the storm to increase the risk of storm surge from all of this. so, not only will there be winds approaching hurricane strength, but flooding, 6 to 12 inches of rain mikely near the path of this -- likely near the path of this and power gusts of up to 40 miles per hou
is on script. and that is that this afternoon's tide will be as bad as the perfect storm '92/irene of last year. and that tonight's tide, along with the entirety of long island sound on our side, could be catastrophic. that's what we're planning for. we hope it's avoided somehow and some way, but if you look at all the surge maps, it's connecticut that will be most adversely impacted. >> yeah. and you know what? i covered connecticut for quite some time many years ago. and there are neighborhoods on the coastline that get flooded during a thunderstorm. >> yeah. >> how are you going to keep homes from getting decimated up and down the connecticut coastline if. >> listen, we've ordered evacuations or suggested ev evacuations that affect 362,000 people, one out of every ten residents of the state of connecticut. but it's the small towns and it's the big cities. it's new haven, bridge fort, stamford, norwalk, fairfield, they're all going to be adversely impacted. we're waiting to see. if this hits 11 feet with waves on top of 11 feet, we're talking about dike systems being overrun. that's the sever
the storm could be stronger than irene which cause more than $15 million in damage last year. strong wind from the hurricane could be health 100 miles -- be felt 100 miles away. >> going to be high winds and rain what we expect so you don't want debris around the house. travel plans should be changed. >> winds are reported to be up to 75-miles an hour. the hurricane was down graded to a tropical storm but was then upgraded again. it has gained strength. >> who knows where it'll make landfall. for more on the path let's check in with rosemary. >> good morning to you. giving you a look at sandy. it's churning off the carolina coast. it'll run parallel through the weekend. normally it would continue this track but we have a pattern blocking it from moving this direction so it's expected to swing west in the coming days. this is the second system that's going to bring it real trouble. we have a cold system, a warm system and the two colliding are going to be major impacts to areas along the east coast and seaboard. we have a forecast here that runs, it looks like between washington and ne
the outer banks, they're worried that could be washed out, parts of it, as happened back with irene. people are paying close attention to the radar, watching the track of the storm. just to see how it affects this area. >> but clearly, george, the streets are pretty dezrted around there, are they not? a lot of vacation homes, as you mentioned, some folks who are living there kind of part time. of those who have decided to kind of wait out the storm, are you hearing very much from them? >> they're seeking higher ground. they're not leaving the island. some people have left, but a lot of people are staying to ride the storm out, going to hotels, going to areas around the outer banks here where they know it's higher ground. they also know the spots that flood. and that's what they're keeping an eye on. >> thanks so much, george. we'll check back with you momentarily. meantime, let's head north now. virginia is one of the places that is also concerned about what the storm could bring. athena jones is in a really beautiful part of virginia, northern virginia now, old town alexandria where it loo
, irene didn't do too much to new york city. but it certainly did a lot to vermont. and will this storm do something similar as it's stalling. here all the models bringing it up from the city down to about washington, d.c. but the big thing is it stops, it stops moving for 48 hours and it could rain for two days and make flooding. if it rains a half an inch an hour for 48 hours, that's two feet of rain in any one spot. that is going to cause significant flash flooding and the potential for big loss of life. >> chad, thanks for the update. we may well come back to you before the end of the show. appreciate it. >>> let's get back to politics and the subject of race. outspoken conservative ann coulter has a lot to say about just about everything, in fact. the new subject of her new book is "mugged, racial demagoguery" dedicated to quote, the freest black man in america. we'll discover who that is. ann coulter, welcome back. >> thank you. good to be here. >> i know you have been struggling with a bit of a cold. >> you have an unfair advantage about it tonight. >> you have been whining about it
a billion dollars. hurricane irene was over $15 billion. it is not good economically. it is not good environmentally. and it is terrible to say to our children that we don't care about your future. we're just going to continue dumping 90 million tons of global warming pollution every single day into the atmosphere as if it's an open sewer. even though the scientific community tells us it's creating a disaster. >> jennifer: well, i tell you thank you for the wakeup call and for the clarity that is former vice president al gore with a clear message. up next, he quite literally wrote the book on hurricane katrina. he knows a little something about presidential elections as well. it is a good combination for tonight's show. historian douglas brinkley is entering "the war room." he's next. stay right with us.

that to the list of things to do. >> i am being serious. this is very much like irene a couple of years ago but worse than that . we'll be dealing with a hybrid storm and super storm that emerges with a cold tront and hurricane inside of a nor'easter. if that sounds scary, you need to be prepared for the storm. it could be potentially devastating. millions of people will be affected by still a hurricane. we will see tropical storm force win and rain all across the coast of florida and extending 300 miles from the storm.this storm will get bigger. it hugs the coast over the weekend and tuesday, dc, philly and new york. you could see a storm packing winds of 60 or 80 miles per hour for hours and hours . storm surge as well with high tide. this being be an event that we have not seen in our lifetime. gretchen, you need to understand your evacuation route this weekend. >> gretchen: i will be calling up jd, help me find my evacuation route. >> i will help you. >> brian: we'll show up at your door. >> you, too, brian. you live close to the coast. >> brian: one anchor ahead. >> steve: can't yell a
. the east coast of the u.s. and variety of events in the past, last year irene resell the surge on the kinetic coast and elsewhere. -- irene last year and elsewhere. >> time for one last question. >> your line is open. >> this storm already is proving to be a major flood event. i was hoping you could speak to what you will be doing in terms of immediate air emergency response and then speak to the coast guard about people having to evacuate people and what you're doing to help communities that have been flooded in the coming weeks. take a safety first. not only are we dealing with coastal flooding, but inland flooding. -- >> safety first. first thing is search and rescue. the assistance will be based upon the needs. the first question is, are they going to need housing assistance? we have already looked at the availability of housing stock, rental properties if we have the housing commission. we are anticipating what the needs are, though we will not know exactly until we see the impact. we are preparing with flight safety, immediate needs, housing, and then moving to recovery.
, would be more dangerous than even irene from last year. it turned out to be a huge flood problem for virginia, vermont and new jersey. i know it's late in the season, but the water is still warm enough to make this storm generate. it went -- i was watch it last night in bed on my -- i was tweeting from 8:00 until 12:00, and this thing went from an 80-mile-per-hour storm to about a 115 as it left jamaica and slammed into cuba, and that was only in five hours. there's a lot of potential. >> is it true that a late storm as well could be a lot deadlier, a lot more dangerous late in the season? >> i would say an earlier storm, october 10th, that peak day with the waters the warmest would be the most concerning, but i think people probably take it less serious. oh, come on, it's november. it can't happen. there's not going to be anything bad. if you let your guard down and think that it's out of season, you're wrong. look at the waves there. is that miami? somewhere. look at that. the way it's crashing on. that's why you can't even be on the sea wall. you need to be behind it and in th
know, new yorkers take everything in stride. a lot of people road out irene last year. a lot of those people we talked to today say they're not doing this time around. they get a sense that this is a little bit more serious. also to give you an idea, the new york stock exchange is staying open, be u the physical trading floor in lower manhattan will shut down. also, craig, broadway shows are going dark tomorrow. >> that's when you know it's a big deal in the big apple. michelle franzen, thank you so much for that. let's go to tom costello now, the approaching storm already disrupting air travel on the east coast. tom is at reagan national airport. how many cancellations, how many delays can we expect at this point, sir? >> reporter: we're looking at about 5,500 as of right now. we've got really the winds picking up dramatically in d.c. in the last hour and the temperature has developed. we have about 1,400 flights canceled today, tomorrow about 4,500 flights canceled. that's the big players on the east coast, united, delta, us airways, jetblue, all canceling flights as early as tomorr
. into conversations, there has been discussions that perhaps down the road may be enrichment on irene cho can be accepted. perhaps at some point, we don't know when, some of the sanctions, could be lifted. secondly, to president obama's credit, he is no saddam hussein. which means that when saddam hussein made a decision, you either agree with it or you would die if you're inside the iraqi political establishment. saddam did not have to deal with a pesky congress nor did he have to do with an israeli prime minister. as a result, the iranians have the confidence that saddam had the strength to be able to live up to his end of the bargain. that is not the perception that the iranians have, rightly or wrongly, about president obama. can president obama promise the lifting of sanctions, most of these sanctions that really are hurting their rings have gone through congress and now to be lifted if there's a congressional district. can anyone here remember last time congress lifted sanctions in a swift manner? moreover, the principal level that establishes the principle of reciprocity. the idea that
, under the name of irene dunne. at my age i have some from time to time started thinking about the end of things and it has occurred to me when my time does come i hope to go the way my dear old grand father did, quietly in his sleep, not screaming like the passengers in his car. [laughter] andrew made me laugh more than anybody i have ever met. we all loved andrew and andrew loved us. my wife, ali mills, was, loved so much by andrew and he said, i never dreamed that i would be in the same family with the mother from ""the wonder years"". he was so full of heart. the think i love most about andrew in terms his public persona how people on the left hated him until they met him and they started loving him. the "new yorker", sent a woman out to l.a. where we all live to do a piece on him. they did a long piece. she spent 10 days. brought the woman over to our house to meet us. i thought they would do a hatchet job. they did a love letter. she loved him. she couldn't say bad things about him. "new york times" wrote two major pieces about him in the last year of his life and they were both
